The Reporter: Solano County educators prepare for tougher educational standards

By Richard Bammer/

As California prepares for new, more rigorous educational standards adopted by nearly all 50 states, with a mission to prepare public school students for 21st-century jobs and college, county educators are getting ready to teach those standards to Solano’s 64,000 students.

Benchmarks to help teachers make sure their students have skills and knowledge, while at the same time providing clear goals for learning, they are expected be the most challenging academic standards ever, said Sheldon Reber, a spokesman for the Solano County Office of Education in Fairfield.

Made public in 2009, the Common Core State Standards Initiative defines the knowledge, concepts and skills that students are expected to learn at each grade level. The standards were developed by the states to give U.S. schools consistent, clear education standards for English-language arts and mathematics as they prepare students for modern workplace demands and post-secondary education.
